When the polls for the 2019 General Election close at 10pm today (December 12) counting of votes will get underway immediately at count venues in all 59 of Scotland’s constituencies.

While some UK constituencies could declare as early as 11pm – Newcastle-upon-Tyne Central declared at 10.53pm in 2017 – some Scottish constituents could be waiting until 6am for results to filter through.

General Election 2019: The seats where the SNP is hoping to make gains

Exit polls

At 10pm news organisations will announce the result of exit polls, which are based on asking people how they voted as the leave the polling station throughout the day.

The polls will estimate the total number of seats expected to be won by the SNP, Conservatives, Labour, the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party, the Brexit Party, Plaid Cymru and other parties.

This year, BBC News, ITV News and Sky News have announced they will again join together to publish an exit poll at 10pm. The same practice was in place at the 2010, 2015 and 2017 elections.

In the past exit polls have correctly predicted the outcome of the election and even the number of seats the parties have won. In 2017, the poll said there would be a hung parliament and the results bore out with the Conservatives winning just 317 seats.

When can I expect my result?

There is no official timetable for result reveals, but Press Association have provided the following rough timetable based on previous election declarations.
